My first trip to have my nails done

I got a surprise this morning, after breakfast daddy picked me up, which I like, he usually gives me some pets and scratchies and I start purring in two seconds. This time, after a few pets, he put me into my kitty carrier. I did not fight or complain much, after all the last time I rode in it was to bring me here to my furever home. Out to the car and a short ride to a place they called Petsmart. They took me to the back of the store and got in line. There was a lady in line ahead of me with a little dog, and she had two nice little girls with her who thought I was really cute. I rubbed up against the door of the carrier, and they put their fingers through and petted me. When it was my turn, daddy told the nice vet tech that I was an Ocicat, and he could not find a way to enter me into his computer! Daddy finally figured it out, he did not know anything about Ocis, and spelled it Aussiecat! Once he got it right he took me back to where they do the nail trimming, and I was a really good girl and behaved very well while my nails were trimmed. They look so nice now! After we got home I got extra kitty treats for behaving so well, I really liked that part!

I am really having fun playing with Saphira now; we chase each other all over the house and get under mewomy and daddy's feet a lot. We are two really fast kitties!


Viola has a new way of dispatching fuzzy mice

Viola's dad again, she has a new way of (I think) dispatching the fuzzy mouse toys after she catches them and is through playing with them. In the last week I have "rescued" eight of them from her water dish, sometimes in pairs. Not sure whether she is trying to drown them or just thinks they need a bath. She does like to toss them in the air and then try to catch them, as does her sisfur Saphira. It is a bit of a stretch to believe that in a bedroom that measures over four hundred square feet, eight mice could land in a dish that measures less than half a square foot by pure chance. They had some feline help, the only question is why? Anyone have any ideas, Viola is not talking!

Update: Last night she brought me back a mouse that was totally soaked! I assume she dunked it in the water bowl and then returned it to me, dropping it into the bowl and then fishing it out again would be really hard for her.


BRRRRRRRR!!! It was REALLY cold here!

Night before last it was pretty cold here, daddy said it was 21 degrees outside, and 59 in the house. I don't know what a degree is, but I know it was really cold. Usually Saphira and I sleep in bed with meowmy and daddy, it's heated so it's nice and warm. Sometimes I sneak under the covers and nibble daddy's toes a bit, but always before I came right back out when I was through playing. I guess since it was so cold, daddy let me get under the covers again with him. He fell asleep, and he seemed a bit surprised when he woke up in the morning and found that I was still down there by his feet. It was so nice and warm under the covers! I think I might do this again on cold nights!


Viola has a new place to drown toy mice!

Viola's dad again. Think I have mentioned how Viola likes to drown captured fuzzy mice in her water dish. This morning I found that she has another location for mouse destruction: There was a white fuzzy mouse floating in the toilet! We have started always leaving the lid down!


OMC, little ol' me a DDP!

I was so surprised when daddy (the big two pawed kitty who lets me crawl under the covers with him) told me that I am a Daily Diary Pick today! It has only been a few months since the pawrents adopted me into their family and added my Catster page. Once my sisfur Saphira learned that I am a pretty nice little kitty and fun to play with, we have been having a great time chasing each other all over the house, and we both love playing fetch with all the nice fuzzy mice they keep for us to chase.

Thank you to the Catster Top Kitties for this pawsome honor! We are all purring happily!


OMC! ANOTHER DDP! This is just too much!

Another DDP! And only ten days since my first DDP! This is just so purrrfect! Purring a big THANK YOU! to all my furriends for their nice pawmails and gifts.

As long as I have your attention, a little update on goings on here in our cathouse (where we DO allow our pawrents to hang out with us)... My sisfur Saphira and I have been playing together a LOT recently! Chasing each other all over the house is so much fun! Meowmy and daddy really think it is cute, except maybe when we either run into one of them or tear across their bare feet (our sharp little claws can hurt, so they say). But we make up for it at bedtime, when each of us curls up with one of our humans and goes to sleep with them. I particularly like crawling under the covers and sleeping by daddy's feet, it is nice and warm down there.

Daddy always says that I finish off a Fancy Feast meal in less than two minutes, turns out he was wrong. He actually measured it this morning, took me eighty seconds, not counting licking the plate afterwards.


Viola demonstrates static electricity

This entry is from daddy, since this story involves some electrical stuff that most kitties don't understand.

The other night I was doing some work on the desktop computer in the den, where we also keep some boxes that we use to store things in. One of them had been used to ship a small radio, and still was full of those expanded plastic pellets, AKA "popcorn". I heard a noise coming from that box, and then saw Viola's head poke out. I reached into the box and gently pulled her out. Now anyone who has ever petted a cat when the humidity is low knows that this can generate a lot of static electricity. Well, pulling her out of that box did the same thing. As she came out of the box, the entire rear half of her body was covered in that popcorn, big time static cling! She looked SOOO funny, half chocolate spots and half white popcorn pieces!


ANOTHER DDP??? This is just TOOOO much!

Thank you again to the Catster top cats and all my furriends here. Such an honor, again!


Yet another DDP! How pawsome is that?

Thanks again Catster HQ top cats, I feel so honored, and so is the rest of my family, both two and four pawed. I am starting to feel a bit like that great writer, Ernest Hemmingway, who loved kitties with extra toes (daddy calls them "polydactyl", but that is a really big word for a little kitty to say.

And thank you to all my furiends here on Catster who have send me best wishes and pawmails about this. Purring thank you!
